Community Networks Aotearoa (formerly NZCOSS) is the national umbrella organisation for local Councils of Social Services (COSS's), Community Houses, REAPS and other social service networks throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.

  • We use our collective voice to lead to policy action, social change and community empowerment. 
  • We recognise that by working together, we can more effectively support local communities and member organisations to achieve social well-being.  
  • The membership of regional and local COSS's and other networking organisations includes people in Local and Central Government, as well as those working for not-for-profit and voluntary social service organisations throughout New Zealand.
  • We place high value on Maori and Pakeha working together in partnership based on the Treaty of Waitangi, along with full engagement in our multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society.
With thanks to Wellington City Council for their support via the Betty Campbell Assistance Grant.
